Sheriff's Department receives funds for equipment

Wednesday, January 10, 2007

BENTON -- Scott County got some much-needed new equipment thanks to a United States Deputy Sheriff's Association grant.

A national non-profit charity formed in 1995 to benefit county law enforcement personnel, the USDSA donated $1,000 to the Scott County Sheriff's Department toward the purchase of equipment for an emergency response team.

The USDSA usually donates specific items to departments but, after receiving a request from Scott County Sheriff's Deputy Dane Stausing, decided the donations of funds to be the best way to help.

The USDSA awards needed equipment free of charge, mostly to rural county law enforcement.
